SAS

So if you've noticed in my sidebar... the big event that sits solo in my upcoming events is.... Sarah Ann Stancliff's WEDDING!!!! She is a "kindred"-- and one of my all-time best friends. Met her at BYU and am so thankful that I moved to La Jolla condos that Fall. We leave tomorrow for her wedding, I don't know what I'm wearing, I haven't finished my laundry, haven't started packing, definitely haven't finished losing the baby weight resulting from the phase pictured in many of these photos (but will have to let that one go seeing as only have mere hours now), so I don't have nearly enough time to write all the fabulous things I have in my heart about her. But here are some sweet memories through pictures, the grainy ones from college (I couldn't find my box with the mother-load, so these are a few sad stragglers) and the others from my trip out to DC to see her. Sarah, SO MANY people's best friend and angel, you are such a blessing to ALL of us! Paul is a lucky lucky man and I'm so happy you found him! ... and then found him again... :) and that time, let yourself fall in love with him. I can't WAIT to be married-friends forever. Where it all started.... the big B Y -- at our graduation.

And no that's not my skin, just a belt. Sarah, I think your mom still thinks of me as your immodest friend because of this picture.
Tortilla Flat. Sigh. I wish-- oh how I wish we'd lived there all four years and that I'd gotten to room with you long BEFORE I found my prince.


Halloween... of course.

Thank goodness you're so much smarter than me, you were able to teach me so much I should have already known of the history laced throughout our nation's Capitol. :)
Yes, me AND Rebecca were both expecting... and Sarah, when during your pregnant-sandwich people gave up subway seats and offered you free doughnuts, it had nothing to do with your tummy region at all, and everything to do with your gorgeous smile and hypnotically soothing alto voice. But that was funny wasn't it? Travel with two mamas, must be a mama.

Proved in several posts since, I've never been the same since my tart yogurt experience. Thanks for insisting on the Mochi. Yum.Pumpkin scone? Who says there's no meal between Breakfast and BRUNCH?I'm hoping that my convenience in getting us to the front of the ticket line (apparently since Angelina made pregnancy so cool, New York treats us like celebrities) outweighed my ball-and-chain effect as I was moving rather slow at this stage... and my quart-hourly (?? more than tri, I know that much) potty breaks.



Top of the MET where we ate what we managed to save of our Sprinkles Cupcake that we intended on eating atop the MET, but ate most of on the way as an old man shot us dirty looks and scolded us in the way of nutrition. Not sure if he was worried about the baby, or just our thighs.... so weird.

My sweet sweet Sarah...
I'm so so happy you've found your prince.

What a sweet tribute to your friend. She looks so happy. I am sure you will look gorgeous at the wedding (whatever you wear) and it will be tons of fun. Just wish you didn't have to stay the WHOLE week. I know, I know, payback. :)

Have SOOO much fun at her wedding! While I only got to meet Sarah a few times . . . it only took that many times to realize how GREAT she is.

Congrats Sarah!

La Jolla condos? You were destined to find greatness by picking that name. Yeah for people that you love finding the right person at the right time. It doesn't get much better. Although all the yummy NY food was coming very close.

Kodi said...

Honestly Lillie, the wedding was yesterday. Where are the pics?

Rebecca said...

This past weekend made me furious that I'm not in every one of the pics from college. Didn't you sit around with Sarah's best friends and understand why she's been so wonderful to them? And have no trouble at all believing that all these amazing women are in love with her?

Hi Lillie! I had so much fun with everyone this weekend. I loved the friends rountable. What could be sweeter than Sarah stories with chocolate cupcakes... You are so pretty - I told Jared, "if that is what motherhood looks like, bring it on!" :) Stay tuned for wedding pictures: meyersmemoirs.blogspot.com

There has never been anyone cooler-- seriously--- than the little group of friends that includes you, M, R, and SAS. Really. If only everyone that moved to BYU was so lucky to find such great friends. Someday you'll find out how uncool I am and be sorely disappointed!
Until then-- I'll hide behind my web page.

What a sweet little tribute to Sarah! I always hear about "SAS", and it's so cute how you talk about her. I'm sure your wedding weekend went fabulous! I loved the pictures of your Grandma, by the way. She looks amazing, and hasn't aged an ounce since I remember her. Your grandparents are amazing!

Missy said...

Lillie, please at least post one of the family photos that the photographer Christy took of your family! I'm so expecting it to be framed and hung by the time you guys get home...

Miss seeing you guys on a daily basis already.

Tortilla flat?
Is that the house with the poop problem in the basement?

Megan said...

That is so awesome. Great times when you have good friends to share things with. What a sweet post. Loved it.

How incredibly lucky am I to have you? Thank you for this 'glimpse' into so many wonderful years shared. I think the college friends stuck best 1) because that's when I found the greatest girls and 2) those are the formative years. I LOVED knowing you pre-Ross AND during the courtship. I loved being at your wedding... so happy to play in your veil. I loved the late night talks, and ever-present ice cream bowls. I loved meeting your little girl, the first of my friends to have one. I am so grateful for our friendship, and that you have kept me close too, in spite of miles and spotty phone habits. We always pick up right where we left off....
Which was usually at the last bowl of ice cream at some kitchen counter. Love you.
